Wink Anyone have any interesting habits/addictions? - June 29th 2009, 12:35 AM

Does anyone have any like odd little habits or things they're like sort of addicted to?

For example mine;
-I can't sit in silence. I have to have music or the television on or something for background noise, even when I sleep.
-If I'm not doing anything with my hands, I'll touch my fingertips to my lips.
-I'm pretty much addicted to menthol cough drops. I always have them with me. I'm eating them right now.
-I freak out if people touch their wrists.
-I always highlight text on the computer as I read it.

And my friend has two;
-She can only flip channels on the tv up and not down. She like cannot hit the channel down button.
-She needs to use hand sanitizer every two hours.

Just little things like that, I'm curious about other people's. So feel like sharing?

"How can you get a goose out of a bottle?"
Imagine that a baby gosling was placed inside one of those big glass bottles with a little opening that you see model ships in, and raised inside, until it is fully grown and can no longer fit out through the neck of the bottle. How can you get the goose out of the bottle? Without hurting/killing the goose.

If i don't respond, it's because you haven't said anything.

I highlight the text on the computer as I read it too. It makes it easier to read and if I look away, then I saved me spot where I was reading.

I used to not be able to sit in silence either. My history teacher said it was because I couldn't stand to be alone and have to think my own thoughts and face myself. I went home that day and sat in my empty house and listened the silence and cried. I know LOVE sitting in silence!

My personal weird habit is I move my head back and forth so I can fall asleep. It calms me. When I'm nervous I sway back and forth.

I can't have people touch me. Especially my face.

All lids on contains must be closed. I can't stand when people leave them open.

I can't fall asleep in my bed if my arms or feet hang off the side of the bed.

I need doors to be closed. I don't like open doors. I can't fall asleep at night unless my bathroom and bedroom doors are shut.

I can't have silence either. I'm always listening to music, even when I go to bed.

I need to wear my watch at all times. If I can't wear a watch I need to wear a bracelet. Just something on my wrist at all times.

I can't walk around in bare feet.
Can't deal without having music or TV in the background like most people...even if I hate the show (Hollyoaks is on and I can't be arsed switching it off).
Must always sleep in my boxers and a tank top.
Must always sleep with a duvet.
When I'm not doing any work in class i.e listening or if the teacher left the room, I seem to be doodling over my book without realising.

I'll get back to you when I think of some more.

-I always highlight the text on my computer too
-I can never leave a book down at an uneven page number.
-I can only listen to music if my bedroom door is closed. The second the door is open, I switch my music off.
-If I don't have at least two cans of Diet Coke a day, I freak.
-I need to have beans on toast at least once a week or I feel odd.
-I have my books in my bookcase in a very specific order. I get so agitated if someone is messing with them/a book is out of place slightly.
-I can't buy a single book in the bookstore. Always has to be two. (Not good when I have like no money. )
-I have a habit of buying full series of books, before I've even read the first one.

I'm sure there's more, but I'm just too used to them to notice.

- I spend most of my time hugging something, be it my bag, my pillow, or one of my friends
- I won't eat anything dairy that's been out of the fridge for more than ten minutes
- If books in a bookshop are in the wrong order, I have to put them in the right order.

I can't just sit and watch TV, I go stir crazy. I have to either be reading or on the computer at the same time.

I can't stop in the middle of a chapter when reading a book, unless it's just a quick break.

If I'm trying to figure any kind of issue out, I usually have to verbalize my thoughts to get to a conclusion. This always bothers people.

I probably have more, but the only one I thought of off the top of my head is that when I go to sleep I can't have my feet sticking out at the end of the covers. I just can't sleep if my feet aren't covered by the bedding. It freaks me out haha!

I always have to have a book near me at home or in my bag when I'm out.
I often touch my nose to make sure it's still there.
I always have to have a pen in my bag. I wont leave the house without one.
My books HAVE to be in page order when on a shelf.
I really cannot sleep if any of the cats are still outside.

Ex.- If I pencil is left in the table pointing at me I have to move it so it doesn't point at me.

I cannot have anyone touch my head.
I always have to be biting my nails or biting something.
I have to sleep with my whole body under the blanket.
I cannot have quiet. I always need noise and that noise must either be human (as in tv or radio) or music

* I have to sleep on the left side of the bed
* No one can touch my pillow or it "loses its smell"
* At uni after I've been to the tiolet (shared) I have to check my wardrobe and under my bed before I switch my light off and lock my door again
* Sometimes I have to do sometthing within like 10 seconds such as reaching somewhere in the car or turning the lights off or "something bad will happen to me" haha.
* I have to eat things like sweets or tic tacs in odd numbers (usually 3's)
* My radio volume has to be set on an even number

That makes me sound like a right weirdo!!

- If I'm turning the volume up or something like that, it has to end in a 0 or a 5.
- Everything has to be in it's place otherwise I just don't feel right till it's sorted. I hate it but I can't help it.

And others I can't remember.

I have to hold my bolster pillow to fall asleep ... spooning style
I have to always chew / suck something, which leaves me constantly biting my tongue ... down to sucking my thumb til I was like 13.
I can't have the volume on anything but a multiple of five (obv unless no measures are there).
There is only one person who can touch my feet without me screaming at them ... my ex and that's only cos we were together so long and he's like the only person I'm 100% comfortable with.
Duvet buttons HAVE to be at the bottom or I won't sleep.
When I go food shopping everything has to fit together on the conveyor, like tetris, not just thrown on. My best friend does this to. Our mams rarely let us shop anymore.

Oooo! This is fun!

-I become physically and emotionally ill, and disorientated in the sunlight.
-I sometimes starve myself in a meager attempt to practice "poverty".
-I rock back and forth when I'm happy. Or upset.
-I enjoy listening to the cymbal bashing monkey "Charley Chimp".
-I don't like people touching my plates, glasses and forks.
-I hate spoons. I hate them. I don't even eat soup with them. That sounds mean. I'm sorry spoons! But I just don't like eating with you. We can still be friends.
-I like doing war chants and dances in public movie theaters.
-I talk during movies about how much I hate the direction/acting/plot/yadda yadda yadda. I also insert amusing anecdotes about how the coming scenes will play out.
-I talk to myself a lot.
-I like to seduce married womin when I think I can make them like me in a romantic manor.

I'm sure there's more, but I don't really remember them. Ta ta!

I pick or bite the skin off my fingers until they bleed if I'm not doing something with my hands.
I crack all my toes seperately everytime I'm barefoot.
I can't take a shower unless the whole bathtub is completely dry before getting in.

ooh.

- i have great difficulty sleeping if there is light any colour but red in the room
- at school, if i'm alone in a classroom or corridor, i stop and close my eyes and stand there until someone comes
- i can only turn the volume on my stereo up to certain numbers (2, 5-12, 14, 20)
- when i shower, i shampoo, condition and body wash in a very certain order
- if my nails are wet (recently painted) i can't even watch something. i have to stay still until they're dried
- i always have the radio on when i vacuum. even though i can never hear it
- i put water in a glass before the cordial. it's because i judge strength by the colour

Have a free hug.

I constantly bite the inside of my mouth. It's become such a habit that I don't even realise I do it now and sometimes it bleeds and hurts which makes me realise what I'm doing it. It's weird.

*I can't sleep without my duvet on, even if it's boiling I still have to have it. It's kinda like a comfort thing, just have to try to adjust my body temperature somehow..... or I just don't sleep.
*When I adjust the TV volume it has to be an even number.
*I have to count down from 10 before turning the shower on.
*If there's an awkward silence or something I start playing with my double jointed fingers and freak people out! I don't mean to!
*I also do something weird with my feet when I'm watching TV. I don't realise that I'm doing it but it annoys the hell out of everyone.

I have to sleep near the wall
I cant have the volume on an odd number
I cant eat my food if like the sauce is touching the rest of the food
And I am slightly addicted to shortbread.

The truth is hiding in your eyes
And its hanging on your tongue
Just boiling in my blood,
But you think that I can't see
What kind of man that you are
If you're a man at all
Well, I will figure this one out
on my own
(I'm screaming "I love you so..." But my thoughts you can't decode)

Re: Anyone have any interesting habits/addictions? - July 3rd 2009, 09:57 AM

- I used to have to drink at least one glass/can/bottle of coke or pepsi a day or I'd get a headache.
- I can't sleep if someone's breathing heavily in the room, snoring I'm fine with but heavy breathing urgh.
- I can't sleep with music on but I can sleep with the telly on.
- I pick at my eyelashes when I'm bored, uncomfortable or just for somewhere to put my hand. It's kinda bad coz they all end up coming out and I end up with not many left.
- I can't stop over at anyone's house if it's near that time of the month.

I cannot have silence, ever.

Habits wise....I must always watch the show 24 on the Volume 24 and I curiously make a lot my decisions based on the roll of a dice.

My friend can't sleep unless she has a full glass of water by the side of her bed. She also counts her steps as she walks.

My best friend pointed out to me today that I am addicted to pineapple. I used to hate it, but now I try and have it everyday. Even though the acidy sweetness makes my tongue hurt

*Cigarettes wooo...
*I too highlight text as I read usually
*Everytime I leave my room, I have to check in the closet and behind the door before I can sit on my bed again.
*I can't sleep without MY pillow
*No matter what I feel like watching, on the DVR I have to start from the bottom and watch my way up.
*Usually have my feet uncovered when I fall asleep
*Talk to myself while I'm driving. xD

I also have to sway back and forth to fall asleep. Like I rock myself to sleep.
And I can never sit still...ever. I have to move something even if its just my toes.

If I turn one way, I have to turn back the other, so both sides are even

I can't sit still, like at all, I always have to be moving my feet

I can't sit with my feet on the floor, it frightens me

1. When walking from one surface to another (like from grass to sidewalk, tile to wood, etc), I HAVE to start with my left foot. Always.
2. I always sit on the right side of a school bus.
3. Scene: I'm in a car with my feet on the floor. There's a series of bumps in the road on the left-hand side. I start to feel unbalanced, so I lift my left leg slightly off the ground. Next time we go over a bump, I only get the sensation in my right foot. Thus, my balance has been restored.
4. My right sock has to have a logo on the inside of my right foot, and there can't be a logo on the left foot's sock.
5. The TV volume has to always be at 16 and the cable volume has to be even and move in increments of two.
6. I hoard half-empty/half-full water bottles in various locations around my room.
7. If I'm shopping and pick up an item I need, I will only take that one I touched - even if the packaging is pretty much destroyed and there's a nicer one behind it.
8. Left side of the bed only, thanks. Stuffed animals, laptop, and papers on the right.
9. I can only play a game on my GameBoy if I'm in the TV room and somebody is watching the TV.
10. I organize my closet verrrrry specifically, and get extraordinarily irritated when somebody attempts to hang stuff up, clean it, or otherwise "be helpful."

Most of mine are balance problems.
